    I used to use my JD 430 with a Classen/Lesco aerator on the 3 point hitch until this spring when I put the tongue on the aerator that comes with this unit and pulled it with the diesel Chopper. I do mostly big lawns and I cut my time in half by towing it with the Chopper. The reason for saving time is I don't have to lift it up to make turns around trees or at the ends of the lawn. On a small lawn with lots of small areas to aerate, the JD would probably be faster.
